no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledges the benghazi terrorism by those affiliated with al-qaeda. there was information that led us, the intelligence community
's narrative, most of the information comes out tends to question and challenge that narrative. there has been so little skepticism on the part of some of the media of what the administration has been saying. >> jon: you said, jim, all along that information wants to be free. now, the information coming out and e-mails coming out but the media interested has been slow to develop? >> and perfectly happy to live with confusion and cloudiness about this. for an example of the sludge we're dealing with as brent baker at news busters when brian williams interviewed more obama, more president, it was a spontaneous terror attack. the question to the president, we're still working on it. more smoke, more clouds. as matthew bland pointed out much more happy on the today show. nbc is also a program showing snooki vacuum cleaner reports and halloween costumes. [ laughter ] >> jon: news busters is is a right wing website. >> they find anti-conservative bias under every bed. david kirkpatrick this in fact was related to a video. you have a "washington post" reporter a c.i.a. briefing that said it was havin
with just 25 days until the election, joe biden and paul ryan competed to take control of the narrative. >> this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself but unfortunately it is indicative of a broader problem and that's what we are watching on the tv screens is the unravelling of the obama foreign policy, we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapons capabiliy. n, t'stake lo at where we have come from. when barack obama was elected, they had enough fissionable ferrill to make one bomb and now they have enough five, they are racing toward a nuclear weapon and four years closer to a nuclear weapons capability. >> war should always be the absolute last resort, these why these crippling sanctions with netanyahu says we should continue if not mistaken romney says we should continue, i may be mistaken, he changed his mind so often i could be wrong, but the fact othe mter is,e says they are working, and the fact is, that they are being crippled by them. >> they come in and inherit a tough situation? absolutely. but we are going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the eco
the narrative, the immigrant narrative as a value-based experience that you can connect to other minority and other americans is really important. you know, it's step by step at the local and state level. in places where i think at the local level there is a lot more willingness to embrace those individuals because they're part of the community. and there isn't that other -- i'm not saying that it's all love and kisses everywhere. >> right. make it look like yes, it's a campaign. >> there is that less of a sense of otherness if you're working with the person in the community, if they're a parent of a kid in your school. and so i think starting at that level does make a difference. frankly, the local and state level is where people sort of cut their teeth in terms of national office. >> chloe, i'm interested in how race or ethnic identity ends up laying on top of the immigrant identity. in part, because if i look at you, you don't look like an immigrant. in part, because the language of immigration has come to mean all these other racialized elements. when you think about this, obviously i
. obama the underdog versus romney the ascent dant is the dominant narrative on the trail. >> patrol this in my voice is getting hoarse. have to keep on keeping on. >> we're going to win november 6th. >> we're going to pull an all-nighter. no sleep. >> we've had a number of debates lately. you know they have really propelled our campaign. >> i believe in you. i need you to keep believing in me. >> the obama campaign is slipping. and shrinking. >> we always knew this was going to be a close race from the start. folks in your business were writing me off a year ago, saying there's no way i would win. >> if i'm elected -- no, when i'm elected -- >> i've come to ask you for your vote. >> i'm optimistic, not just about winning, we are going to win, by the way. >> don't boo. vote! vote! >> the obama campaign is also out with this new ad showing consequences of staying at home. >> 537, the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. so this year, if you're thinking that your vote d
is and to build a narrative around that. that doesn't reenforce the larger one for the romney campaign. look, the american public is well aware of the economic situation our nation is in. it's a recovery, but the slowest and least satisfied since the great depression. something has to be said about that and directions have to be pointed at the future of the policy. that's what the governor is going to do tonight, but what has been interesting and not necessarily in every intans helpful to it, so to jump on one each day and pretend that's the news or the driver instead of having larger narrative about the present and future. >> dan, if you believe in that larger idea of the narrative, what should the narrative be for romney tonight and should it be let's take this one great idea, pound it home as many times as you can or hope something sticks? >> no, the former. look, american presidential elections are usually decided on which candidate the public at large feels has the best vision of the future. our presidential elections are generally speaking, not about the past, but about the future. tha
the narrative of this race is going to change. >> romney has been preparing with senator rob portman who filled in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they
. that was a beginning moment for me. >> one of the narratives that runs through this book, particularly as he becomes more sick in the last part of it, you are the relentless, you are going to be okay, there is going to be hope, if i make enough contacts, i'll fix this. he is the almost unfailing despite his occasional request to you to help voice of it is not going to get better, deal with it, what did you learn over the course of that thing about the terrible tension between hope and reality acceptance when you are close to someone who has a terminal illness? >> that is such a hard question because the fact is they are so you. you are looking at yourself. it is impossible when your brother, sister, and 2 and a half years apart. i couldn't give what he was going through a reality. i couldn't see it for what with it was. it was catastrophic. now that i had my brother, i was desperate not to lose him. >> you hadn't had him until this. >> we had that cotten batting between us. we had a fierce attachment, when you are that locked together in this kind of angry, very strong bond, underneath that is the b
narratives, the narratives by the media about the candidates. all year this year obama was basically ahead in the polls, a winner's narrative. romney with a winner's narrative. i sense it's changing with big bird and "sesame street." sort of becoming self fulfilling. i'm wondering if biden is not perceived as the winner of this debate tomorrow night, is that going to make the narrative problem a loss worse for the obama campaign? >> it is if the polls that were taken out in the field in the beginning of this week are the same as the ones we saw that were taken, you know, friday night and in to the weekend and they continue to confirm that mitt romney's really surging in all the right places and that would become a problem. if there's sort of, you know, a draw between biden and ryan, where we say, boy, they both really did pretty well. ryan held his own, biden didn't say something crazy and they both have a lot of knowledge if not experience but they're credible and qualified and the obama ticket didn't mess up and then you saw in the polls more of a settling, i think you'd have a more comp
overnight and reactions may change, people's reactions may change but the media narrative stays the same. >> we'll see about this one. the polls on friday, rasmussen and we ask america both showed romney pulling ahead by a slim margin. i will predict the people who are complaining bitterly about the polls a week ago will not complain anymore. gallup organization had a blog about the methodology of this. the polls are what they are. they are a snapshots of opinion but they i don't think they cooked either way. therefore, i think conservatives should be happy. >> jon: there was the "washington post" poll that ran on monday. judy is nodding her head. 41% for governor romney, 52% for president obama in this "washington post" poll. 52% of likely voters across swing states side with obama. 41% romney in the new national poll. the problem here there was a margin of error of 8 points and there was a sample size of 161 people? >> right that poll should have never one and hats off to jennifer rubin for the "washington post" who called her own newspaper on that poll and pointed out the eight-point
is a master at creating a narrative that doesn't always exist. if you look at the swift boat scandal again, the veterans for troops in 2004, dallas' last election. it was enormously affect that. he had absolutely nothing to do it, but of course then you go back, and it takes months to do this, any figure out where the money came from, came from the same donor's from people like bob kerrey who is a texas billionaire, harold simmons another texas billionaire and so forth. and now, he has made sort of his allegiance with the tea party and he's got people like the koch brothers will put an end as as much as $400 billion into this election. sheldon eagleson will put a as much as $100 million we will see him go to work over the next two months. and we will see him go to work over the next two months. and we will see him go to work over the next two months. and -- [applause] >> i guess you have questions now. i should say this is on c-span, so this is being televised and be careful what you say i guess. >> i was listening to earlier, developed a few questions for not. one, do you have any idea ab
at showing -- that are at telling and showing anyway. and first person narrative is all telling. storytelling. the book came out in 1964 with excellent reviews. it was a surprise bestseller. he returned to edgewater, wrote more essays, more political journalism and it worked in other screenplays before he returned to rome to finish his washington novel. this is simply named washington, d.c. is a family saga about political life from the new deal to the mccarthy era. at bush in early 1957, it was a step backwards, a surprisingly clunky novel written mostly in expository dialogue. there's a promising subplot in the homoerotic bond between a newspaper publisher, a young politician, but vidal is limited by the conventions of third person fiction and his tendency to express strong emotion in a language of crashing melodrama. the book received mixed reviews, but it, too, was a bestseller doing even better. many people thought it was a play about the kennedys. he wrote far better about politics as an essayist. he also spoke about it well. during this time he not only cover the 1964 political convent
to change their story to rewrite the narrative even as it unfolded. the ministry should focus was on the anti-muslim video as the cause of the tragedy. the secretary of state made no reference of any kind as a terrorist attacks. >> americans couldn't to religious tolerance goes back to the beginning of our nation. let me be clear. there is no justification. lou: only 40 minutes later president made an appearance in the rose garden. he talked for five minutes much of that time talking about his september 11th memorial duties and wounded four years in arlington cemetery and around the world then said. >> no acts of terror will ever resolve this great nation, alter the character or eclipse the values we stand for. we will not waver and our commitment to see justice is done. lou: preceded by reference on september 11th with a terrorist attack on american soil for that that point* field on a administrations already knew those attacks were acts of terrorism with ties to al qaeda that has attacked our consulates and the ambassador steakhouse. to defend the backing of the arab spring.
, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing an american ambassador, three others and destroying property. the fact that this president would have the audacity to put his political ambitions above the health, safety and welfare of the people he was sworn to protect is an outrage. i agree with david gregory to take it to plouffe and make him answer these tough questions. this president shirked his responsibility. he went to a fundraiser when he should have been back at the white house because this was not an isolated incident. in fact, i believe he added fuel to the fire by giving credence to the youtube video for further violence against america spread throughout not only the middle east, but the world. the middle east is melting down, and the president finds time to go campaigning? it really is shameful. megyn: dick, mitt romney took so much flak for making a comment about the initial reaction of our embassy in the wake of our attacks which was apologizing for hurting the religious feelings of
war and the national narrative that emerge from it then as david w. plate. his 2001 masterpiece called race and reunion one of the most words of the field at the bancroft prize and abraham lincoln price, for douglas prized at 40 words from the organization of american historians. in this book he argued would seem so. to us now, largely because of his work, but the chief narrative follows the civil war were about the north of the south and how they people thought. but as the historian joan law points out, left out of this account were competing narratives. and i'm quoting, one of those narratives is the story of slavery emancipation and freedom, unquote. blights mandate has long been too pathetic narrative back into the official account of the civil war. and his other works in supper, including beyond the battlefield in a civil word, passages to freedom, underground railroad and they slave no more, two men who escaped to freedom, including their narratives of emancipation. and countless articles, essays and lectures, returned to different aspects of the theme of memory and commemoration
. they probably have some narrative on each one of the tough issues, the stealing of $716 billion from medicare, the failure to create any jobs in this country, the horrible grants that they gave to people that almost immediately went bankrupt. all of those things, he will have a narrative. i just mope the public understands that there is the narrative, the white house is going to give and you the truth. we have learned, there is always a big difference between the narrative they hand us that misrepresentations and the truth. >> sean: i am paul ryan, i wouldn't let one lie go through without -- excuse me! that's not true. mr. president, sir. i would be polite about it. governor, good to see you again. >> good to be here. thank you for letting me come on. >> sean: coming up tonight... >> i never said that. i never said we don't know-- >>> oh, really? jay carney is taken to task on the benghazi. we will check in with liz cheney and michelle malkin this. friday, i make my big-screen debut in at lat shrug, part 2, we have anique peek. the full clip coming up later in i know the name of eight prince
, clearly, the debate. >> the debate, the debate and the debate. has it changed the political narrative, what philosophies did they articulate last night, what about their facts? were they true to the facts? and who really came off better and more persuasively throughout that night. we're really going to try to figure this out and figure out its impact on the voters and the american people. >>reporter: any winners and losers in your eyes? because it seems the experts are saying that mitt romney was the clear winner. >> well, i think mitt romney came off as far more aggressive in this debate. the president seemed more passive. mitt romney sort of always wanted the last word, barack obama didn't answer some of mitt romney's criticisms, but when you actually assess some takeaways, they were both in the weeds, they both stuck to details, there weren't any great sound bytes that people are going to remember and i think ultimately in the long run, this is going to sort of narrow the gap a little bit, change the narrative, give the press something else to talk about. so in that sense, it's go
. this week we're talking about the presidential debate and all the polls and how the narrative is changing in the race for the white house. professor, let's first talk about the polls. all the polls are coming out and it looks like the race has tightend a lot since the last time we talked. >> you even see some national polls with mitt romney ahead which would have been unthinkable a couple of weeks ago. basically last week, whether you think barack obama won or lost or mitt romney won or lost that debate, the media have declared that mitt romney destroyed barack obama at that debate. barack obama was basically oozed sitting there, mitt romney was the incredible thor and all of a sudden you have this narrative of this powerful romney, articulate romney, moderate romney, bipartisan romney who setting the agenda in this election and that has put the obama team on the defensive, very big on the defensive. so this media narrative has changed and the media narrative has very big power in helping people process what's going , see who's up, see who's down and understand who has the real momentum i
narrative. whether or not i succeeded or failed is up to the audience and the people who push back on my perspective, but for me the ability to spend time with an issue, too deep and your understanding of that issue, provide the debt to audiences, that is key to take apart that issue of the audience -- of vigilance. >> to different pressures that are in no way similar, but speak to how hard is to be a professional reporter, a documentary filmmaker in these times. in your film you talk about a couple of different stories, a columnist, a court reporter, the founder, living on this side of the border to avoid danger. in a time when it is so hard to make a living doing this anywhere, are we asking too much of professional journalists, do you think? >> that is a great question. i think the newspaper reporters that profiled in a "reportero" -- the lead reporter, they had very serious threats that force them to send his family away for a while. they would say, we are just regional reporters, doing our peace, cover and organized crime as we see it played out in this region. what u.s. reporters d
cultural narrative. it is replacing an old legacy narrative that was toxic. it told us the go live comes from shopping and competition -- it told us the good life comes from shopping in competition, from being free from each other. we are leading ving this because it has pushed us to the brink of extinction. it has enslaved as to debt. it is boring. it is spiritually empty. there is a news story being born in san francisco. it is one where the more you contribute to the common good, the more you are respected. the better you believe in committee, the more access to what you have -- the better you behave in a community, the more access you have. instead of judging each other, we help each other and realize our greatest potential. we open our world to each other. through doing that, we are liberated. we find freedom through our relationships. i have lived both of these stories. the old one almost broke my spirit. the sharing story has saved me. let's continue the discussion about how we can bring more people into that story. thank you. [applause] >> we will start with you. is that ok? >> s
reporter, long complex narratives involving dramas and situations. i am curious to know what was hardest about memoir with somebody living their life as a working journalist? let me preface it a little bit with someone who has similar tendency. this is from 2005. i would like it if you would read from here. >> perfect. yeah. this is a moment in the book where, i am kind of flipping out writing about my brother. i am listening to tapes, because of course i have gone back to the orchards, my brother has died at a young age. i have gone back to the orchards to do interviews, i keep doing this dancing about what it is really about. i am saying i am outside the event although in the middle of it. it is protection, part of the latex that is covers me. making tapes, to crack the grid that i can understand on situations that are incomprehensible. at this moment i want to change everything in me tobserver part and move into something else, the living your life part. when does that start, exactly? something else, i look into the mirror and someone says what are you doing here? you have no right to
war and the national narrative that emerged from it then has david blight. is 2001 masterpiece called race for the union pacific war in american memory when all of the most important awards in the field, the bancroft prize, the lincoln prize, the frederick douglas price and four awards from the organization of american historians. in this book he argued that what seems so apparent to us now, largely because of his work, that achieved narrative to follow the civil war were about the courage of the soldiers and about the north in and the south and how people fought that as the historian john law points out, left out of this account were competing narratives and i'm quoting, one of those narratives was a story of slavery, emancipation and freedom unquote. his mandate is long to put that narrative back into the official account of the civil war. in his other works since that book including beyond the battlefield race in the civil war passages to freedom the underground railroad and history and memory and they slave no more, two men who escaped to freedom including their narratives of eman
journalism, which created shared narratives, but the truth is what we only saw was the narrative from a particular perspective. now, we have chaos. i'm not saying that is not a problem, but on the other hand, we need to think about the fact that we have a lot more voices and a lot more information, and we need to develop citizens that understand not only how to read a news story and understand it, but also know how to tell a story, understand how fact work, how confirmation works, how non- fiction story telling works. that is a big challenge. we also need to develop procedures within the community of journalism in the new media that are as thoroughgoing and really comprehensive about the nature of the practice of journalism for the new media as they were in the newsroom, say, 20 years ago. >> i think one answer to the question of how we police bias, at least on line, is that online news is a conversation, right? that is one thing that is great about it. when you are talking about a piece that runs on line -- online that people can immediately start commenting about, people can start t
's a fisher here between secretary of state clinton's state department and their narrative and the administration and the political campaign's narrative which wants to say it was the intelligence community or we didn't get the right story? >> well, patrick kennedy, the other state official who testified, said that he had gotten the same briefing and that he said the same thing they were saying. but the night before this hearing, state win out there and put out a very different story an the administration had pedaled in the first week. >> right. but the benghazi story is a piece of the administration's larger strategy, which is so long as we have an election on, the rest of the world may as well not exist. iran doesn't exist, syria doesn't exist, the syria rebuffs from russia don't exist and a terrorist attack in benghazi sure as heck doesn't exist until it becomes a problem for us. >> where is secretary of state clinton in this? she's out of the picture. >> look for the next job or keeping a low profile. they put out susan rice, who is a leading candidate for that job if ob
on in our country in terms of a moral narrative. we tell stories from the past that explain how we got to the present. and there are good guys and bad guys and it is almost like a child's cartoon appeared on the left, it is the bad guys of big business that are raping and pillaging the environment and at least in the port. if we can get the cops in on them, they will control them. the witty the right regulators and they will get those bad guys. -- we need the right regulators and they will get those bad guys. my sense from emily with the tea partiers is that there is as much a sense of good and evil as there is with every group. i think we should talk about the role of the court and -- the role of the poor in being the bad guy. we saw this in the romney 47% comments. the american dream is dying because people have demanded entitlement programs that have sapped the will to work. basically, pushing away the latter. but we do not want that latter -- pushing away the ladder. we do not want the ladder. >> i think that goes to the concept that you brought forth, which is proportionality. ess
romney and trying to develop this narrative and jim oh point is right. when you see governor romney unfiltered, that whole narrative implodes. he is not a radical guy of the governor and the president doesn't have a plan. >> jon: "new york times" and wall street editorials both made that point. they both said in the course of their editorials, journal out of ammunition. there is no reason to think that obama's second term would be better than the first. so obama won the debate has no plan. that is out. there. i think it's very damaging. reporters don't want to get completely away where the friend is going. they are happy to be on one side but they don't want to look like idiots if obama loses by ten points. >> jon: they say they have portrayed mitt romney a certain way and now people can see him, they are changing their minds. they are forming opinions on the man himself. do you agree? >> yes, but there is a qualifier. when you get a statement like binders full of women. when you hear a comment from governor romney, it's subjected to interpretation. gee, that is like i have a blackb
tend to look at history in terms of a moral narrative. we tell stories that reach back into the past and explain how we got to the present, and there are clear good guys and bad guys, almost like a child's cartoon. the big business -- the bad as the big businesses, people raping and pillaging the environment -- the bad guys. we need to get the right regulators, and finally, we will get those bad guys. my sense, from what i've heard from emily and david, is that among tea partiers, there is a very moralistic moral view, and there is good and evil, but we should talk about the role of the poor as being the bad guys -- certain groups of poor who demanded these entitlement programs. we saw that from mitt romney's 47% comments. the sense that the american dream is dying because people have demanded entitlement programs that sapped the will to work, that are basically in a sense pushing away that ladder emily was talking about. who is evil in the tea party moral -? -- moral narrative? >> it goes to your point about actions and consequences should be correlated so that if you make good deci
